During the 2020 Application Cycle, Grant Recommendation Committees reviewed applications and made funding recommendations for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program funds to be included in the 2020 Action Plan. The draft Plan was open for a 15-day written public comment period beginning September 12, 2019 and the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) held a public hearing and reviewed and approved the funding recommendations on October 28, 2019. The City of Bremerton approved by separate action the City of Bremerton HOME projects at a public meeting at their Bremerton City Council meeting on November 13, 2019. The funding amounts included in the Draft 2020 Action Plan were based on estimated CDBG and HOME funds. The final 2020 Action Plan shows actual funding for projects based on final awards from HUD, program income, and rollover funds totaling $1,159,591 in CDBG funds and $1,440,190.28 HOME funds.

As an Entitlement Community, Kitsap County will receive $641,438 from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), signed into law on March 27, 2020, to prevent, prepare for and respond to coronavirus. Affordable housing, including rental assistance, has continually been a top priority and rental assistance has become even more urgent due to the increased number of households unable to work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners at their work study session on April 15, 2020, directed all funding towards rental assistance. The projects awarded CDBG-CV funds are included in the 2019 Action Plan Amendment. Click to view a
